Measuring up to 2000 V DC and 1500 V AC (using the PVHV Leads), as well as 1500A AC or DC, the DCM1500S is ideal for use in the installation, maintenance, monitoring and testing of photovoltaic systems as well standard AC or DC electrical equipment. The meter is supplied with both standard 4mm leads as well as the new PVHV1 (4mm) and PVHV2 (MC4PV) HV lead sets.

It has a large clear backlit display and an automatic torch in the jaw to assist use in poorly lit areas. Using the free Megger Link App, the measurement value can be remotely monitored on a smart device using the built-in Bluetooth®. This will give a live trend graph and offer the ability to sample and log the values for later analysis. The smart data-hold expands the standard hold function by giving the operator an audible warning if the “held” reading increases by 50 counts or above.

Min/Max hold provides the ability to measure the maximum and minimum values over a period of time, with each value selectable in turn. Other features include a High Frequency Rejection Filter, inrush current measurement, internal data logging, a non-contact volt seek mode and manual DC Amp zeroing

In addition to voltage and current measurement the DCM1500S has the ability to measure Resistance, Diode, Capacitance, temperature and Frequency.The DCM1500S is safety rated to IEC 61010-1 and IEC/EN61010-2-033 CAT IV 600V, and CAT III 1000V


The DCM1500S is designed to be used on electrical systems and equipment, including Solar/Photovoltaic installations where, there is a need to measure current, volts, resistance and frequency. It is therefore intended for use while installing, maintaining, fault-finding or monitoring those systems.

The tactile barrier below the jaws of the instrument ensures a safe working distance for the operator’s hand when measuring current on live uninsulated conductors, although additional personal protection must still be used. The Smart Hold allows increases in measurements to be monitored with an audible tone. The Max/Min and In-rush modes enable maximum load currents from equipment to be identified such as start-up currents to motors and heaters.

Delivery Notices (Updated March 29th 2021)

During the current situation surrounding the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, logistics from every company are under immense pressure to deliver goods on time.
Coupled with manufacturers on reduced output due to more stringent working practices and a global shortage of component parts to supply UK manufacturing, we have taken the decision to 
temporarily limit our services rather than let our customers down amid these unprecedented circumstances.

Orders requiring calibration 

Whilst we take the greatest care to get all orders dispatched and delivered to you in the stated time frame, orders received PM and requiring
calibration may on occasion miss dispatch that day, according to the complexity of the calibration. Be assured they will ship on the next dispatch
this in most cases should not add more than 24 hours to your delivery.

Bank/Public Holidays

Predicted delivery times are based on regular trading days Monday to Friday. Public holidays, bank holidays and weekends are outside the usual scope
of our dispatch and subject to activities/holidays of our carriers and therefore may incur additional days lead time to your order.
